Nobody wants to talk about death, the elephant in the room. We all act as if will never happen to us and go about living our same lives the same way every day. But what if you changed your perspective? What if you, instead of thinking about the life you've lived thus far, started to think about how many years you have left. Would you make choices, some which that might change your life from this point moving forward? Each week, The Bucket founder David Abend brings you a different perspective on mortality. Listen in to how he and his team are re-branding death and mortality into a positive force for change and good.
